The film invites viewers into a celebratory house party populated with rooms inspired by the Channel’s original programs and characters. Goldfrapp’s “Happiness” provides the soundtrack for the trip through the never-ending house where anything can and does happen in each one-of-a-kind room. Through high concept visual storytelling, each scene fuses a bold complement of visual effects with practical set design. “House of Imagination” was designed to be modularly deconstructed into a dynamic, long-running campaign of 10 and 5-second network identifications. The experience will extend digitally into beginning July 7th, where visitors will have a rich, fully-interactive and immersive experience as guests at the house party. They will be able to explore parallax rooms and discover exclusive content including games, behind-the-scenes and making-of-footage, cast interviews, downloadable wallpaper and much more.

Said Michael Engleman, Vice President, Creative @ Syfy and the key architect behind the brand film – “Coming off the most successful year in our 16-year history, we wanted to create a brand film that both celebrates the genre and also feels human, relatable , and wildly creative, highlighting the wide array of casts and characters who inhabit Syfy’s ever-broadening programming landscape. Through this unique creative collaboration we’re honoring and embracing a powerful global brand with deep roots in the popular culture.”

House of Imagination is produced and directed by the award-winning UK-based 4Creative team led by director Brett Foraker, who was joined specifically for this project, by Larry Fong (Director of Photography – Watchman, 300) and Tino Schaedler (Production Designer – Charlies and the Chocolate Factory, V for Vendetta, The Golden Compass) with visual effects by MPC (Watchman, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix).
